THE 2020 VINTAGES COLLECTION
In honor of their exceptional character, the bottles of the Plantation «terroir» rum collection are now decorated with special labels worthy of the uniqueness
of each vintage and each country of origin. For the 2020 editions, local birds brighten the labels with their colorful feathers. These exotic images, evoking the iconic illustrations of the Comte de Buffon, are a real treat for the eye.
PLANTATION’S “FOUR-HANDS” PROGRAM
The “Four-Hands” program exemplifies the philosophy at the heart of the brand: the essential preservation of rum cultures and their traditions.
Our vintage rums are the fruit of inspired collaboration between Alexandre and passionate distillers, who work together to select and blend the barrels that will form an ideal unison. Like pianists, they share a keyboard to perform a duet. The goal: To bring out a product’s finest elements and create perfect harmony.
This perfect synthesis of two cultures – the Caribbean and Cognac – was created by two great connoisseurs: Alexandre Gabriel, creator and Master Blender of Plantation Rum, and Luc Satgé, who has been the faithful guardian of the Plantation cellars for more than 10 years. For Luc, this rum is a real passion project; his baby, as he affectionately calls it, is a true collaboration between the two colleagues.
The obvious synergy between Alexandre and Luc played a key role in the resolutely Jamaican character of this rum, enhanced by those distinctive qualities that define Plantation: rare, precious, and captivating. A new opus, and an exceptional one.
This gem, aged 16 years in Jamaica in bourbon casks, followed by one year in the Ferrand cellars in France, is a charming combination of intense fruit aromas like green banana, passion fruit, and plum as well as hints of vanilla and bitter almond extracted during this very special double maturation.
